Danaya C Group's story

The members of the Danaya C group are married women who average 40 years of age and five children each. They all live in polygamous families in Bladiè, a village of Bougouni, 3rd administrative region of Mali.

They partnered with the Soro Yiriwaso microfinance institution to sustain their farming activities during the rainy season. This is their 4th loan cycle with the MFI, and all past loans were correctly repaid.

Salimata, sitting first from the right, grows fonio, groundnuts and rice. She plans to use her loan to buy inputs and seeds, and to pay for the plowing of 1,25 hectares of farmland.

After the harvest, the crop is sold in the village, in Garalo and in Manankoro to a clientele consisting of both men and women. Salimata expects to earn a profit of 135,000 FCFA per season, which she will use to repay her loan and help her husband with the daily expenses.

In this group: Salimata, Maratou, Diaratou, Rokia, Chata, Mariam, Mamouta, Chata Madou, Diatou Yacou, Batoma 2
